    Dear Gus & Rosemary,
    I am so sorry to read about the loss of your dear wife and mother Emmy. I know that this is a sad time for you and your family and nothing anyone can say will help the pain go away.
    Emmy called me a few years back on my birthday. We talked and reminisced about our families and the times we spent together. You, Emmy and Rosemary were part of our family gatherings for many years. Every time I go down to the grounds and look across the Elbow River, it brings back memories of your family.
    Please accept my deepest sympathy for you and your family in your bereavement.
    Shirley Simmering
    and brother Bob

  4. It is with great sadness that I just found out about Emmy’s passing. You were my first and forth landlords in Calgary. I have very fond memories of you both because of that. My deepest condolences to you Gus, and your family. Several years late, but just as heartfelt.
